BioNBiochar – innovation of the week by PROVID2

The Projet de Vulgarisation des Technologies et Innovations pour un Développement Durable (PROVID2), third-party project of PDTIE,  aims to ensure access to technological innovations for vulnerable populations in Cameroon and the DRC through community appropriation of research results and innovations.

Each week, PROVID2 highlights an environmental technology and innovation for sustainable development and poverty reduction developed by innovators in Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
This week, discover BioNBiochar , a revolutionary solution developed by TANYI Clovis BESSONG to increase the productivity of small-scale corn farmers while preserving our environment.

🔍 Problem: Traditional biochars often lack nitrogen, requiring the use of synthetic fertilizers that compromise soil sustainability.
✨ Solution : BioNBiochar enriches biochar with organic nitrogen from the by-products of black soldier fly larvae rearing. A biological approach that naturally fills the nitrogen gap, without the need for synthetic fertilizers.
